Report of Overseers of Poor, 



In presenting our Report for your consideration, we would 
say that the affairs at the Almshouse remain the same as in 
the past. Mr. and Mrs. Allen have charge, and are always 
ready and willing to receive all visitors, and show the work 
of their department to all who take interest enough in the 
poor to make them a call. 

We have a large number of children at the home, who 
should be provided with homes outside ; and we had made 
arrangements for placing some of them where they would 
have been well brought up, but were prevented from carrying 
out our plan by the parents of those children, who refused 
to give up their claim to them. The Overseers think the 
law should be so changed that if the Town is obliged to bring 
up a family of children on account of the dissipation or 
idleness of the parents, it should have full power to provide 
the children with homes wherever it chooses. 

There have been six deaths at the house the past year, 
mostly old people ; and as we are finishing our report we 
hear that Mrs. Mary French, who has been an inmate for a 
number of years, and who had reached the remarkable age of 
one hundred and one years and one month has passed away. 

Our relief outside has been as large as usual, and we have 
at present more inmates at the insane asylum than ever. 
We help a large number who belong to other towns, and 
shall be reimbursed to the amount of $337.63 by those towns. 

We have asked for $500 on repairs on Almshouse, for the 
reason that it will be necessary to shingle the house the 
present season in order to keep it in good repair.

Report of the Chief Engineer 



Fire Department 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen : 

Gentlemen, — In compliance with the Regulations of the 
Fire Deparment, I have the honor to render the following 
Report, and submit such recommendations as in the judg- 
ment of the Engineers will meet the present requirements of 
this department of service. 

The Department consists of one third-class steam fire- 
engine, and one horse hose-carriage ; one hand-engine, with 
hose-carriage ; 2000 feet of hose in good condition ; and 
about 500 feet of hose that has been repaired and is not 
reliable ; also one first-class hook-and-ladder truck, well 
supplied with ladders, hooks, ropes, pikes, poles, and buckets, 
located at the engine-house on Park Street ; also ladders, 
hooks, and ropes at the engine-house at Ballard Yale. 

The Board of Engineers consists of five members. The 
Steamer Company is not to exceed sixteen members ; and 
the Shawshin Company, at Ballard Vale, consists of forty-five 
members. 

We have, within the past year, purchased one new length 
of suction hose, also one new length of rubber hose to connect 
with the steamer. And we have also caused the harnesses 
in the steamer-house to be hung, to better enable the appa- 
ratus to reach the scene of danger ; believing that the first 
few moments are of great importance in subduing a fire. 



57 

There were in the year 1885 twenty-two alarms of fire, 

as follows : 

Jan. 7, 1885. Heirs of J. Millett, house. Insurance 

paid, $50 00 

Feb. 27, 1885. J. H. Flint, slaughter-house. In- 
surance paid, 10 00

paid, 150 00

April 24, 1885. J. P. Bradlee, billiard hall. In- 
surance paid, 87 00 

May 10, 1885. S. D. Abbott, forest. No insurance. 

May 10, 1885. Mrs. Laura Manning, forest. No 
insurance. 

June 7, 1885. Michael McGowen. No insurance

Cemetery. No insurance. 

July'4, 1885. Stephen Blaney, house. Insurance 

paid, 250 00 

July 8, 1885. J. P. Bradlee, billiard hall. No in- 
surance paid.

surance paid, 23 60

Aug. 22, 1885. James Grosvenor, house in con- 
struction. Insurance paid, 25 00

ance paid, 2 50 

Sept. 26, 1885. Mrs. W. P. Foster, boiler and hen- 
house. Insurance paid, 50 00 

Oct. oQ, 1885. Nehemiah VV. Smith, house. In- 
surance paid, 14 1'.") 



58 

Nov. 10, 1885. Mrs. L. J. Blunt, house. Insurance 

paid, $18 60 

Nov. 15, 1885. Daniel Gage, forest. No insurance. 

Dec. 17, 1885. John Cumnock and Son, plush 
factory. Insurance not ascertained. 

Total insurance paid on buildings, $1431 65 

Total value of buildings, $66550 00 

Total insurance paid on contents, $64 20 

Total value of contents, $32765 00 



Total value of buildings and contents, $99315 00 

We would especially call your attention, as did your former 
Board of Engineers, to the insufficient supply of water. 
There are yet several places in the centre of the Town at 
which, in case of fire, it would be possible for the depart- 
ment to render but small assistance, for no other reason 
than for want of water ; and we deem it of the greatest 
importance that the Town should take some immediate 
action to secure a larger supply of water for fire purposes ; 
and we would recommend the building of the several Reser- 
voirs as petitioned by the citizens of the Town. We have 
examined and measured the water in the several Reservoirs, 
and find that the amounts stored are not materially changed 
from the amounts given in last year's report. Agreeably to 
the vote of the Town at its last Annual Meeting, the Board 
of Engineers has constructed two Reservoirs : 

One on Salem Street, with a capacity of 18,500 gallons, 
containing at the present time 16,000 gallons ; at a cost of 
$410.75 ; unexpended appropriation, $89.25. One on Pike 
Street, capacity 19,000 gallons, and now containing 19,000 
gallons; at a cost of $568.71; unexpended appropriation, 
$31.29. 

We trust that the Town will look with favor upon the 
purchasing of a pair of horses, to be stabled at the Engine- 
house for the use of the Eire Department ; and we think that 
when not otherwise employed they could be used advan- 



59 

tageously on our streets in summer, repairing them, and in 
winter pathing snow. And we would recommend that the 
sum of $500 be appropriated therefor, and that the Board of 
Engineers be instructed by vote of the Town to employ \ a 
man permanently at the Engine-house to care for the horses, 
and drive them when they are at work for either the Street 
or Fire Department. 

We are also forced to believe that the time has come for 
the Town to make some change in the apparatus at Ballard 
Vale. As we believe the old hand-engine at that location 
has passed its days of usefulness, — having been in constant 
use for something like thirty-five years, — and the cost of 
running it, in our estimation, exceeds the cost of running 
a small-sized steamer, and the benefits derived would be 
largely in favor of the steamer, we recommend this subject 
for your favorable consideration. 

At the Annual Meeting, March 1885, it was voted to 
purchase a hook and ladder truck for the use of the Fire 
Department, and the sum of $500 was appropriated therefor. 
And your present Board of Engineers most heartily con- 
gratulate the Town on the possesssion of a hook and ladder 
truck, second in material, finish, and beauty to none in the 
State. Our immediate predecessors in office were the pur- 
chasers, and we accepted their purchase with pleasure. 
They having made arrangements for an independent com- 
pany of ten men to attend all alarms of fire, we deemed it 
advisable to continue the same until the matter could be laid 
before the Town at its Annual Meeting in March 1886. 

And we would now recommend that the B. F. Smith Hook 
and Ladder Company consist of ten members, and be accepted 
by the Town as an additional company in the Fire Depart- 
ment, with the same pay and like privileges as other members 
of the Fire Department receive. 

We would recommend that $2500 be appropriated for the 
running expenses of the Fire Department for the ensuing 
year. 



Also a special appropriation of §500 for the purchase of 
new hose for the use of the Ballard Yale District, as they 
are sadly in need of the same.

Report of the Board of Health. 



At a special town meeting held May 11th, 1885, the fol- 
lowing persons, viz. Henry A. Bodwell, Samuel K. Johnson, 
and John C. Pennington, were chosen to constitute a town 
Board of Health during the remainder of the current year. 
An appropriation of one thousand dollars was also made, to 
be expended in such manner as the Board should deem 
necessary or advisable. Of this liberal appropriation more 
than one half, as will be seen in another part of this report, 
remains unexpended. 

The Board thus constituted met on the evening of May 
14th, at which time Mr. H. A. Bodwell was chosen chairman, 
and Dr. J. C. Pennington secretary. It was decided to hold 
weekly meetings during the summer months for the purpose 
of receiving complaints and suggestions, and to transact 
other business. It was also agreed that two out of the three 
members should have power to act for the Board as a whole. 

The week following a notice was published in the Lawrence 
Weekly American, which it is thought best to insert here in 
full, as its requirements are as important at the present time 
as when it was first published. The notice read as follows : 

" The undersigned, recently chosen to act as a Board of 
Health for the Town of Andover, desire hereby to call the 
attention of physicians and other persons within the town 
limits to chapter 98 of the Acts and Resolves of the Afeasft* 
chusetts Legislature, in the year 1885, sections 1 and 2, viz. : 

" ' Sect. 1. When a householder knows that a person within 
his family is sick of small-pox, diphtheria, scarlet fever, or 



62 

any other disease dangerous to public health, he shall imme- 
diately give notice thereof to the Selectmen or Board of 
Health in the town in which he dwells ; and upon the death, 
recovery, or removal of such person the rooms occupied and 
the articles used by him shall be disinfected by such house- 
holder in a manner approved by the Board of Health. 

"' Any person neglecting or refusing to comply with either 
of the above provisions shall forfeit a sum not exceeding one 
hundred dollars. 

" ' Sect. 2. When a physician knows that a person whom 
he is called to visit is infected with small-pox, diphtheria, 
scarlet fever, or any other disease dangerous to the public 
health, he shall immediately give notice to the Selectmen or 
Board of Health of the town, and if he refuses or neglects to 
give such notice he shall forfeit no less than fifty nor more 
than two hundred dollars.' 

" Attention is also called to the following act of the State 
Legislature, approved April 29th, 1885 : 

" ' Chapter sixty-four of the Acts of the year 1884 is hereby 
amended so that it shall read as follows : The School Com- 
mittees shall not allow any pnpil to attend the public schools 
while any member of the household to which such pupil belongs 
is sick of small-pox, diphtheria, or scarlet fever, or during a 
period of two weeks after the death, recovery, or removal 
of such sick person ; and any pupil coming from such 
household shall be required to present to the teacher of the 
school the pupil desires to attend a certificate from the 
attending physician or Board of Health of the facts necessary 
to entitle him to admission in accordance with the above 
regulation.' 

u Considering the possibility of an epidemic during the 
coming summer, and in any case to remove as far as practi- 
cable causes of disease, the Board would urge upon each 
and every householder or owner of property within the town 
the necessity of immediately removing accumulations of refuse 
matter which are, or are likely to become, offensive ; and, 
in particular, of so disposing of the drainage from houses 



63 

that it shall not lie exposed upon the surface of the ground, 
or be discharged into the public highways. 

" The Board will at present meet once a week, and will 
give attention to such suggestions and complaints as are sub- 
mitted in writing, in the order in which they are received. " 

The subjects referred to in this notice will be mentioned 
farther on. 

The first work that demanded attention was a general 
inspection of the sanitary condition of dwellings and tenement 
houses. This has been done, for the most part, by all three 
members of the Board together; the premises being inspected, 
and the owners either interviewed personally, or a printed 
notice sent stating the nature of the defect and requesting 
its correction. Two notices were issued, of which the fol- 
lowing are the blank forms : 

No. 1. 

Office of the Board of Health, 
Andover, 188 . 

M 

You are hereby notified that your premises 
are in an unsatisfactory condition 
as regards healthfulness, by reason of the following : 

You are hereby requested, within days from date 

of this notice, 

For the Board, very respectfully, 

Secretary. 

No. 2. 

Office of the Board of Health, 
Andover, 188 . 

M 

You are hereby required, within days 

from date of this notice, to improve the condition of your 
premises as follows : 

In case of your neglect or refusal, this Board will feel 



64 

compelled to proceed according to law, and to have the said 
premises put in proper condition at your expense. 

For the Board, very respectfully, 

Secretary. 

These forms were suggested by somewhat similar ones 
issued in a neighboring city. They were accompanied by 
an extract from the Public Statutes denning the powers of 
Health Boards in such cases. No. 1 was first sent, and, if it 
met with no response, it was in due time followed by No. 2. 
We take much pleasure in saying that No. 2 was rarely used, 
and in expressing our appreciation of the promptness and 
cordiality with which our fellow-townsmen have responded 
to our efforts in their behalf, even when they have incurred 
some trouble and expense in so doing. 

Notice No. 1 was sent forty-four times. In thirty-nine 
instances out of the forty- four the work was done as required ; 
in two, the persons to whom the notices were sent were 
excused after further investigation ; in three, No. 2 was 
sent, and of these two were successful in securing the im- 
provements desired ; the third was sent late in the autumn, 
and through some oversight has not been reported on. 

The districts visited have included the more thickly settled 
portions of the town proper, as well as Frye, Abbott, and 
Marland Villages, and Ballard Yale. Particular attention 
has been given to the condition of tenement houses. While 
we urge upon all the importance of keeping their own 
premises in a healthful condition, we think that this is even 
more to be insisted on in the case of buildings rented or 
occupied by those who can ill afford the time and money 
requisite to make sanitary improvements themselves. Much 
has been done during the past year by the large owners of 
tenement blocks in cleaning and repairing vaults and in 
providing a better method of drainage. 

Five written complaints have been received. In four of 
these the matter was investigated and satisfactorily ad- 



Go 

justed. In the fifth, which referred to a serious nuisance 
caused by burning leather scraps, the otFence has been 
for the most part stopped, although complaints on that 
score are still occasionally made. The fumes from burning 
leather, hair, or other animal tissues are exceedingly pene- 
trating, and their suffocating, odor is diffused through neigh- 
boring houses by being drawn into the air-boxes connected 
with the furnace for heating. In cold weather the atmosphere 
is tli us made very disagreeable and distressing to persons 
suffering from lung diseases, as well as insalubrious for all. 

The question of drainage presents serious difficulties in a 
town like Andover, which is becoming each year more thickly 
populated, and where in many places there is little or no 
slope to the land, no running stream available, and no system 
of sewers. These defects are quite as prominent within the 
village proper as in the neighboring villages, in fact more so, 
as in the case of the latter the river is near enough to be 
made use of without much trouble or expense. Where the 
surface is level it is in most cases also marshy, both because 
the few streams that flow through the town are inadequate 
for drainage, and also because the streets are to a great extent 
raised higher than the adjoining land. Jn this way, as is the 
case in all that section bounded by Main, Green, School and 
Chestnut Streets, as well as another large area enclosed by 
Elm street, Punchard Avenue, and Bartlett Street, and in 
other places that might be mentioned, the land is fairly 
fenced in by the elevated roadways, with only here and there 
a small brook — dry in summer — to receive and carry away 
the natural j.oil drainage as well as the sewage from houses. 
Such districts are sure to become unhealthful in time unless 
efficient measures for drainage are carried out. In the ab- 
sence of sewers but two possible methods remain for disposal 
of refuse matter, viz. either to distribute it upon the sur- 
face of the ground, or to receive it into cesspools. Either 
of these methods is open to serious objections. Where there 
is considerable cultivated land in the neighborhood, spread- 
ing refuse upon the surface and turning it in is probably 



G6 

the safest way of disposing of it. Fresh earth within a foot 
or two of the surface is one of the best known disinfectants. 
This is not true of earth at a lower level, as its disinfectant 
properties are due to the decomposition and destruction of 
noxious compounds, accomplished by minute organisms in the 
soil, and aided by a free circulation of air. Both of these 
agencies are only fully efficient near the surface. The dis- 
posal of drainage in this way requires an amount of labor and 
constant watchfulness which we cannot look for in any com- 
munity. Where the plan has been adopted, it has been a 
prolific source of annoyance and complaint. Cesspools, on 
the other hand, can not be looked upon otherwise than as a 
necessary evil. If tightly cemented, and their openings raised 
high enough to keep out surface water, and provided they are 
cleaned out sufficiently often, they are comparatively un- 
objectionable ; but a cesspool that is made tight and stays 
tight and does not fill up during a heavy rain is worth a 
day's excursion to see. Where the cesspool is not cemented, 
but is built with walls of large stones, laid without mortar, 
the contents will saturate the ground until it is distributed 
through a radius of a hundred feet or more ; in fact the ex- 
tent of its distribution is only limited by rock strata and 
underground water cbannels. As the destruction of noxious 
compounds by percolation through earth at a distance of a 
few feet from the surface is by no means probable, — in fact 
all the evidence we have tends the other way, — it is evident 
that the longer such a system of drainage is continued the 
more thoroughly is the subsoil rendered dangerous to wells 
and springs. The distance of a well measuied on the sur- 
face from the nearest stable, cesspool, or other source of con- 
tamination, affords no reliable criterion of its purity. This 
may be seen by referring to almost any series of analyses of 
well water. In many instances will be seen a want of corre- 
spondence between the character of the water and its appar- 
ent surroundings, showing that impurities may be carried 
under the surface for great distances, and, on the other hand, 
that their flow may be diverted so as not to reach a well close 



67 

by. It is obvious that all measures tending to saturate the 
subsoil with sewage are objectionable, and that their effect 
may be far reaching and long continued. It has, then, been 
with considerable regret that we have felt obliged in many 
instances to cause the construction of cesspools as being the 
only thing we could do under the circumstances. We can- 
not too strongly urge upon the people of Andover the neces- 
sity of taking immediate steps to provide efficient drainage, 
at least for some sections which are very badly off in this re- 
spect. The district referred to above, enclosed between Elm 
and Bartlett Streets and Punchard Avenue, through which a 
new street has been recently opened, and in which a number 
of new houses are at present awaiting their occupants, is al- 
ready in a dangerous condition, and in its present state is 
sure to prove unhealthful. It would be possible to construct 
a sewer beginning at a point on Punchard Avenue between 
Park and Chestnut Streets, and continued westward in a di- 
rection parallel with those streets, discharging into Rogers 
Brook a hundred or more feet west of Main Street. Given a 
uniform incline between these two points, such a sewer could 
be made to drain the area referred to by means of tributary 
drains where necessary, and in the event of a more general 
system of sewers being built, it could be connected with this 
at any convenient point. Other sections of the town are also 
in need of similar improvements, but this one is mentioned 
as being in a particularly bad condition, which is constantly 
becoming worse. 

During the month of September samples of water were 
taken from fifteen wells selected as fairly representing the 
different districts of the town. Of these, eleven were taken 
within the village proper, one each from Abbott and Frye 
Villages, and two from Ballard Vale. One other analysis 
was made for a private party at his own expense. Samples 
of the water of Haggett's and Pomp's ponds were also taken. 
The samples were analyzed by Dr. Charles Harrington of the 
Harvard Medical School, and the results can be seen by those 
interested by applying to the Secretary of the Board. The 



68 

waters of Pomp's and Haggett's ponds are nearly identical 
chemically, and of both the chemist reports, «■ No evidence 
of pollution — considerable vegetable matter, as shown by 
large albuminoid ammonia, and blackening on ignition." 
Both are very soft. The presence of vegetable matter is not 
in itself deleterious ; but if water containing it is once infec- 
ted with, for example, the germs of typhoid fever they will 
multiply readily in it. For this reason it is an undesirable 
ingredient. 

Of the fifteen samples taken from wells, six were reported 
as excellent, some of them being quite hard, but otherwise 
good ; five were open to criticism, though not absolutely con- 
demned ; two were considered decidedly suspicious, and dis- 
continuance advised ; while two more were declared utterly 
unfit for use. One of the best samples was that taken from 
the Grammar School well. One of the very worst was the 
sample taken from the pump on the corner near Memorial 
Hall. The analysis of this water shows evident contamina- 
tion from the sewer which runs close by it, and which receives 
much of the surface drainage of Elm Square and surround- 
ing premises. 

One other sample may be mentioned as an instance of 
contamination existing in spite of an apparently safe location. 
The well is situated upon private property, on level ground, 
and fully one hundred and fifty feet from stable, cesspool, or 
any other source of filth. Of the sample taken from this 
well it is reported : 

" Ammonias comparatively low in amount, but presence 
of nitrates and somewhat large amount of chlorine render 
suspicious. Residue and hardness very high. Would advise 
discontinuance." 

On the whole, it may be said that the only safety as re- 
gards drinking water lies in a supply for the whole town from 
a suitable source. The water of Haggett's or even of Pomp's 
pond would be suitable, provided measures were enforced 
which should prevent their pollution. 

A word has to be said on the construction of privies. We 



69 

have all varieties, from the cemented vault to a mere hole in 
the ground. In a number of places the premises are so situ- 
ated that the only convenient place for the privy is on elevated 
ground behind the house. From this commanding position 
the contents of the vaults, solid, fluid, and gaseous, descend 
upon the premises below, poisoning the air, enriching the 
soil, and contaminating the wells. We regard the best con- 
structed vaults as open to serious objection. They hold 
altogether too much ; they are always more or less filled with 
water ; they furnish a too convenient receptacle for refuse of 
all kinds ; they are difficult to clean thoroughly ; their odor 
is always perceptible, to say the least. We have found but 
one method of privy construction worthy of recommendation ; 
and that is to have not a hole, but a platform, raised high 
enough to keep out water, and upon which dry earth can be 
thrown every few days, and the whole accumulation removed 
at frequent intervals. This may be objected to on the score 
of trouble ; but it costs trouble to keep clean. 

One defect in house drainage we have condemned and had 
rectified wherever it has been brought to our notice, namely, 
the use of wooden pipes as sink drains inside of houses. They 
soon become saturated, leak, and smell badly. 

It must be owned that the efforts of the Board have been 
mainly expended upon the most flagrant violations of sani- 
tary law — that many objectionable features have not been in- 
terfered with, and that a city board would find something 
to condemn in perhaps a majority of our houses. We have 
been obliged to consider the limited means of many proprie- 
tors, and to adapt our requirements to their abilities. Some 
of the houses and tenements in the mill villages we would 
gladly see abandoned as unfit for occupation. Some are so 
situated that they cannot be made healthful dwellings. This 
subject will furnish unlimited opportunities for study and 
action to future Boards and to owners of property. 

The condition of school buildings in general, although 
doubtless susceptible of improvement, does not call for any 
immediate alteration, so far as we know, with the exception 



70 

of the Grammar school building, in regard to which many 
complaints have been heard. Many of the children come 
from a distance, bringing their lunches with tliem, and in 
cold or stormy weather spending the noon recess indoors. 
Although allowed to remain in one of the rooms up stairs, most 
of them prefer the freedom of the basement at this time, as a 
certain amount of restraint cannot be dispensed with in the 
school-room, even during the intermission. The cellar, for 
there is no basement properly speaking, is cemented, but it 
is chilly and damp, and in rainy weather the floor is more 
or less covered with water. Measures of improvement have 
been discussed with the School Committee, and we would 
recommend, as the easiest way out of the difficulty, that a 
plank floor be laid six inches above the present cemented 
bottom, that the walls be covered with lath and plaster, leav- 
ing several inches of space between, which should be made to 
communicate with ventilating flues opening on the roof. It 
is believed that this would remove the principal objections to 
the use of the basement, and that it could thus be done more 
cheaply than in any other way that has been mentioned. 

The ventilation of the Town Hall is not altogether satis- 
factory, the closeness of the atmosphere being very noticeable 
in case of a large assemblage of people. It is not easy to fix 
upon the best remedy for this. The efficiency of the ventilat- 
ing flues might be increased by raising the chimneys so that 
their tops should be on a level with the peak of the roof; but 
we would recommend further advice on this point. One 
matter in connection with the hall should, in our judgment, 
receive immediate attention. The privy attached to the rear 
of the building is only accessible by a single door opening 
from the large room down stairs which is used as a kitchen 
or for other general purposes. When there is a ball or an 
exhibition of any kind, participants or performers cannot seek 
relief for their necessities without going down stairs through 
a more or less public room to the door above mentioned. 
Up stairs there are no accommodations of the sort whatever, 
and the smaller anterooms leading from the stage have at 



71 

times been found in a condition not to be described even in 
a health report. We deem it necessary that there should 
be two separate apartments available from the stage, which 
may be accomplished without any great amount of alteration 
or expense. 

During the past year the number of cases of contagious 
diseases has been small. That a considerable proportion of 
such cases are not reported we cannot doubt. It is earnestly 
requested that physicians comply with the law, and report 
promptly, either verbally or by mail. A record is kept of 
cases reported, which is forwarded to the State Board of 
Health ; the School Committee is notified when such cases 
occur in families to which school children belong ; and where 
diseases exist which may be presumed to be due to local 
causes, these are examined into and rectified when possible. 

In regard to the use of disinfectants, especially the disin- 
fection of rooms and houses after recovery from scarlet fever, 
diphtheria, and the more frequently recurring diseases of 
this class, we have not thought best to insist upon these 
measures being carried out. Unless this work is done very 
thoroughly, with the minutest attention to details, it is worse 
than useless, as it is apt to give a false feeling of security, 
and lead to carelessness in permitting those exposed to con- 
tagion to associate too early with others. Where large 
families occupy a few rooms in a tenement, where every 
corner of space is filled with furniture, bedding, and utensils, 
efficient isolation of the sick is practically impossible, and 
thorough disinfection can hardly be accomplished except by 
burning the house down. In diphtheria, which, more than 
any other disease, appears to be the direct offspring of filth, 
dampness, and bad drainage, and which is especially liable 
to be communicated by the matters expectorated, there is a 
good reason to believe that its spread may be prevented by 
attention to house sanitation and by the proper use of disinfect- 
ants in the treatment of the disease. Scarlet fever is much 
more capricious. While at times the virulence and perma- 
nence of its contagion are not exceeded by any other disease, 



it will at other times disappear under circumstances appar- 
ently the most favorable for its propagation, without precau- 
tions of any kind being taken. Where families have sufficient 
accommodations for the absolute isolation of the patient, and 
can command the time and the facilities necessary to a 
thorough disinfection of all articles used in the sick room, 
— reserving the latter for a thorough fumigation, — such a 
course is to be advised, though not relied on as certainly 
efficacious. Disinfection as frequently practised we regard 
as little better than a farce. For the most part we leave the 
carrying out of such measures, where practicable, to the 
faithfulness and discretion of the attending physician. We 
have, however, requested the School Committee to require a 
permit from the Board of Health before allowing any child 
from an infected household to re-enter the school which he 
has been previously attending, and we await their action on 
this request. 

Shortly after the opening of the schools in September a 
communication was sent to the School Committee requesting 
that they enforce the vaccination law to the extent of ex- 
cluding unvaccinated children from the public schools, and 
offering free vaccination to such children as brought a request 
to that effect from the Committee. In return we were 
desired to go through the schools and vaccinate all scholars 
who had not been previously vaccinated. As we were at 
the time thought to be in special danger from small-pox, it 
was thought best to adopt this method, although by so doing 
we provided free vaccination for many who might as well 
have paid for it themselves. The number of cases far ex- 
ceeded our expectations. All the sehools in Andover, Abbott 
and Frye Villages, and in the West Parish were visited. 
Two hundred and fifty-six children were found who had never 
been vaccinated. These, with three teachers, brought the 
number up to two hundred and fifty- nine. Out of this total 
there were twenty-eight cases of failure. All of these were 
revaccinated, with the exception of nine. One of these was 



not revaccinated, as it was found that he had been vaccinated 
previously ; the other cases were mostly from distant school 
districts, and either could not be found or failed to present 
themselves. The virus used was mostly that furnished by 
the National Vaccine Establishment at Washington. Martin's 
virus was also used to some extent. The virus was used as 
soon as possible after it was received, and was kept in an 
ice-chest, protected from dampness. In no case was the 
virus over a fortnight old, and its activity has been found to 
be unimpaired after a much longer period. Prolonged ex- 
posure to the cold air of a refrigerator does not impair it, 
whereas it will deteriorate rapidly at ordinary summer tem- 
peratures. For this reason we should in future give the 
preference to Martin's virus, as being of as good quality as 
any, and as being readily obtainable fresh. 

It is suggested that in future some better, or at least some 
more economical, method be adopted than that of the present 
year. One dilemma is difficult to deal with. The law 
requires that every child of a certain age shall attend school, 
and also that he shall not attend school unless vaccinated. 
If a parent refuses to allow his child to be vaccinated, what 
are we going to do about it ? There seems to be no solution, 
except in the law requiring every person, whether scholar or 
not, to be vaccinated. No attempt has as yet been made to 
enforce that law, and it is a question that demands considera- 
tion. The Board has paid for vaccinations at the rate of 
fifty cents each. This includes the furnishing of virus, the 
visiting of the schools, and the revaccination of unsuccessful 
cases. In cities vaccination has been obtained at lower rates ; 
but in these cases the virus has been furnished to those 
employed, the operation is often performed hastily, and the 
cases not looked after subsequently. It is not likely that 
nearly as many cases will require vaccination another year, 
as only new scholars have to be looked after. It is still 
desirable to furnish free vaccination only where the scholar 
cannot reasonably be expected to defray the expense.

This leaves a balance, out of the $1000 appropriated, of 
$585.10. 

If the present Board is continued or a new one chosen, we 
would suggest that an appropriation of 8500 be made for 
next year, allowing the balance of $585.10 to remain as a 
sinking-fund, for use in case of emergency. It may be 
thought best to fix the salaries of the members of the Board. 
These have been estimated this year with some reference to 
the amount of work done by each person, and are believed 
to be low enough not to tempt office-seekers. 

There is much that may be done during the coming year 
in the improvement of public and private property, in making 
arrangements for the regular removal of refuse of all kinds, 
and in perfecting plans for promoting the health of school 
children and of the community at large, especially in the 
matter of vaccination and the prevention of contagious 
disease. We submit this report of the first year's experiment 
with a local Board of Health, and hope that further experience 
may add to its efficiency. The scope of the work can only 



75 

be enlarged and its effectiveness increased by employing 
persons to do at least part of the inspection, to remove waste 
matter, and to attend to other details ; and it is in view of 
probable expenses of this kind that we recommend an annual 
appropriation.

Report of Cemetery Committee. 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, with statement of receipts and expenditures for the 
year ending February 1st, 1886. 

There has been built in continuation twenty-four rods of 
face-wall on the southwesterly side of the premises, and over 
twelve hundred loads of gravel have been moved. The 
walks and avenues have been cleaned, and a lot measuring 
one hundred feet in length by eight feet in width has been 
laid out for single graves. 

No wood has been sold from the premises the past year, 
and only eight burial lots have been disposed of during the 
year. Consequently the expenses incurred have overrun 
the appropriation, as will be seen by the statement. All the 
work that has been done was deemed advisable ; and from 
year to year improvements should be made to render this 
public repository of the Town in keeping with good taste 
and in conformity with public sentiment. 

We therefore respectfully ask for the usual appropriation 
of $300, together with the proceeds of such sales as may be 
made from the premises during the ensuing year.

Fourteenth Annual Report 



OF THE 



Trustees of Memorial Hall 



The full report of the Librarian leaves little to be said 
with regard to the affairs of Memorial Hall. A large number 
of valuable books have been added to the Library during the 
past year ; and it becomes more and more an important 
element in the life of the Town. It is not only an unfailing 
stimulus and source of education to young minds ; it is also 
of great use as a solace and comfort to those who have 
passed beyond the most active period of life. We would 
again remind all who make use of the Library of the im- 
portance of preserving every year's report. If this is, done 
a complete Catalogue of the Library up to the close of the 
preceding year may be in the hands of every family. 

The annual examination of the property has shown the 
the building, books, and furniture to be in good order. 
Respectfully submitted,
